analyst and former communication director karen finney, and columnist for "the hill" as well, and analyst and former rnc chairman might beal steele. good morning. >> good morning. >>> when things broke down with harry reid, the white house stepped in with the vice president to broker a deal. what's going on here, karen? is the president playing a game of chicken? will the white house change its mind? or is this truly a line in the sand? >> i think it's a real line in the sand. the president has been very consistent and serious from the beginning on this. i think there's a couple of goals. congress can't have it both ways. you have to act responsibly and pay your bills. that's part of why i think the president said if you want me to be in charge, fine, i'll take care of it, but that's not how our government is set up. so i think clearly the president is not going to back back down. the last time we had a shutdown, there's not shut down a piece over here or there. when you shut it down, there are very serious consequences for the american people very immediately when you do that. >> among t
from washington msnbc political analyst karen finney, and democratic strategist julian epstein. karen, if i might begin with you, the president of the nra, david keene, says an assault weapons ban would never make it through congress and that any limits on high capacity ammunition clips would also fail and larry pratt h executive director of the gun owners of america, says background checks are a complete waste of time. so why don't we all now go home and look forward to the next mass shooting. >> yeah. we might as well. you know what? and while we're at it let's give up on the debt ceiling, give up on health care implementation. you know, why bother? we're not going to solve any problems because it's going to be too hard to ask our members of congress to do their job? here is the thing though, you know, look at how intensified and ugly the rhetoric got last week, talks of insurrection and 1776 and stalin and hitler and then over the weekend these pronouncements that it's not going to happen, no way. what that tells you they're becoming increasingly desperate because there's also a ga
. >> the record speaks for itself. >> let's get to our panel now. msnbc political analyst karen finney while slouching but now isn't, and msnbc contributor goldie taylor joins us. karen, what's your view to the apparent lack of diversity in the president's cabinet as he moves forward? >> on the one hand i was disappointed in the picture, but i do feel like we need to wait and see what the full complement looks like and as others have pointed out, there are women in the cabinet, he has put two women in the supreme court. overall in the first term he's had a stellar record. at the same time though, martin, my bigger point here is i think we need to take the bigger picture. this is not just about who president obama appoints to his cabinet. we know this country has changed demographically and a broad coalition of voters elected this president, but i think we should hold everybody accountable for making sure there's diversity. while i was disappointed to see thus far we haven't seen the kind of diversity i hope we will see when we see the full picture, i think there's a much bigger question and
. with us from washington is msnbc political analyst karen finney and michael o'hanlon of the brookings institution. good afternoon to both of you. karen, senator kerry put great emphasis today on fiscal matters as relates to u.s. foreign policy. he said, and i'm quoting him, more than ever foreign policy is economic policy. is that an answer to republicans who criticize security lapses while simultaneously slashing the state department's budget? people like rand paul who would have slashed the state department by 71%? >> right. well, let's remember rand paul also wouldn't have voted for the 1964 voting rights act before we give anything he'd say any credence. absolutely. the other point john kerry was trying to make is when we talk about spending cuts, there are implications to those cuts, real consequences. but also we can't just retreat inside our own borders because -- particularly think about the conversation we've been having about the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling. the american economy somebody very important to the global economy. we cannot have the kind of nonsense we've ha
wrote to the president following the tragedy. joining me, karen finney, washington bureau chief david corn, and assistant editor for "fortune," leigh gallagher. he and the vice president outlined other proposals they hope will put an end to incidents like the sandy hook shooting. >> i have no illusions about what we're up against or how hard the task is in front of us, but i also have never seen a nation's conscience so shaken by what happened at sandy hook. the world has changed, and it's demanding action. >> what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them and shield them from harm and give them the tools they need to grow up and do everything that they are capable of doing, not just to pursue their own dreams, but to help build this country. this is our first task as a society. i'm putting forward a specific set of proposals based on the work of joe's task force, and in the days ahead, i intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality. because while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence complete

that is already under way. all right. that does it for us here at the cycle and we've got karen finney in the chair for martin today. >> hey, thanks, guys. good afternoon. i'm karen finney in for martin bashir who is out sick on this thursday, january the 31st. republicans are going after one of the president's men. but did they get him? >> our men and women in uniform and their families must never doubt that their leader's first priority is them. >> our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment. >> why do you think that the iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination to be secretary of defense? >> i have a difficult enough time with american politics. >> i want to know if you were right or wrong. that's a direct question. i expect a direct answer. >> those who cried appease, appease are hanged by those they tried to please. >> it's a fundamental difference of opinion. >> appeasing our adversaries while shunning our friends. >> do you believe that all options should be on the table when we confront iran? >> absolutely. >> the question is were you r
